The so-called ‘klauwboeken’ are a source exclusively found in the Ommelanden, an area in the present province of Groningen, as a product of its characteristic local judicial organisation. In the Late Middle Ages this region was immediate to the Emperor, had no intermediary landlords and was characterized by a de facto absence of higher government. The office of local judge rotated until 1795 in a fixed order, as recorded in the ‘klauwboeken’, among those who were entitled to it and owned this right as a private property. In this article the origin, development, and tradition of this source is considered as part of the legal history and the development of literacy in the Ommelanden.
